The inner painting is returning to ABQ for the 2nd year! Inner painting is an unique Chinese art form, it involves glass bottles which have pictures and calligraphy painted from the inside by using a special paint brush. Guess what? All the artists doing inner paintings in China now are no more than 400 people, and artists like our inner painter this year, who could be counted as masters in this art field are less than 40. Holiday is around the corner, it's time to prepare special presents for your beloved ones!πŸŽπŸŽπŸŽπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Plate spinning is a traditional performance in Chinese acrobatics. It is a circus manipulation art where a person spins plates, bowls and other flat objects on poles, without falling off. Come to see how our wonderful acrobats do it!
